Thank you, Franklin.

Wait time for my two evaluations was one week. Got second one Tuesday.

For what it's worth...

For what it's worth my most recent script on the BL site has an average rating of 7.3 (4,7,9,9) with a 7 by the reader evaluation. From that I got a direct email from one of the top 5 literary management companies in the business with a request for another sample of my writing. I also used that evalaluation as part of my querying and I noticed an "industry download" for every 5 queries that I sent out. My imdb rating spiked to all time highs for two weeks. It's the biggest dent I've made thus far. Now I got my toe in the door for my next screebplay and you can bet your ass I am going to go through the BL again.


Btw - any news on the Symbolic Exchange Smart Scares submissions shortlist?

Thanks!

This is about the 4th time I've made a BL short list, so I'm hoping to finally progress from "bridesmaid" to "bride" this time.

Congrats, Lauri.

Unfortunately even though my script has been listed as one of the top unrepresented horror scripts on the site since I had it evaluated I have not received any notice regarding the shortlist.
